Hand #135: Roy Winston Wins the WPT Borgata Poker Open ($1,575,280)

Hand #135 - Roy Winston has the button, he limps for 300,000, Yoon raises to 1 million, and Winston calls. The flop comes Q64, Yoon checks, Winston bets 1 million, Yoon thinks for a minute before he raises to 3 million, Winston moves all in, and Yoon immediately calls with AK for ace high. Winston shows 44 for a set of fours, and Yoon needs a jack and a ten (for a straight) to survive.

The turn card is the 2, and Yoon is drawing dead. (The meaningless river card is the 7.) Roy Winston wins the pot -- and the tournament -- with a set of fours.

Heung "Scott" Yoon finishes in second place, earning $832,725. That's a hell of a return for a $240 satellite entry.

At just past midnight, Roy Winston wins the WPT Borgata Poker Classic, earning $1,575,280, a silver watch, and entry into the Season VI WPT World Championship in April, 2008.

 

Straight Jacket

For the record, both players just checked on the turn and river, and they both were holding straights. Some things just need repeating so they get a chance to sink in all the way.

The river card is the 9, and they check again. Winston shows 3-x for a seven-high straight, but Yoon flips over 8-x to win the pot with a higher nine-high straight. Scott Yoon takes the pot.
